Another feature, again courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities - past or present - who have a birthday on this day.

11/8/1924: Thomas Brown

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Thomas Brown - the Pompey player from the Blues' past born on this day.

Not someone I'm too familiar with as Brown was well before my Pompey days - I'm guessing that of all reading this - and to be honest I also cannot say I know anything about him either.

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 4
Won - 1
Drawn - 3
Lost - 0

Another day where we've not played too many but also gone through it without a defeat and I can recall the games against Derby and Wolves but have only managed the one, the League Cup win at Plymouth in 1998.

This was the game where I first made contact with the late Ken Malley and a number of the others in the Devon Blues... this seems like only yesterday.

What are your memories of Brown - too early I would think - from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Character at Charlton praised

Pompey had to work hard but given the chances we had a victory at the Valley was probably warranted against Charlton on Saturday.

Revenge, a quarter of a century in the making

What did I say? I wasn't entirely sure what way it would go - I did think there would be a winner - but eventually stuck my neck out and said Pompey would sneak it at Charlton.
